Challenge France

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

Sunday was my second half Ironman in just one week at Neiderbronn Les Bains in France.
I was a little worried I wasnt sure how i would pull up after a half the sunday before,but trusted Brett would get my legs feeling good!
Thankfully thats exactly what happened my legs felt great on the bike and in the run,even better than the week before!
This was the first time I felt like I could actually ride to my ability, it was agood feeling to lead off the bike and have a solid run to take the victory!
I think the hardest part was driving home Sunday evening after the race and arriving at 2am then not being able to sleep before the 7am swim session!
Thanks firstly to Brett for allowing me to trust that I would feel good , Jamesie for the company and my mum for the amazing support she has given me over the last two weeks!
Thanks also to Guy Hemmerlin and Challenge France for having me, and I look forward to coming back next year! bekfr2010

Half Challenge Kraichgau Germany

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

Myself ,James and my awesome Mum set off Thursday for our 4 hour road trip to the small German town of Kraichgue for our first Euro race.
It’s always exciting heading to any of the Challenge races, as the events are so professional and us pro athletes are treated like rock stars in comparison to some other events!
Once again the Challenge Family put on an awesome event, with over 3500 competitors these races are gowing fast and i can see why!
We were all housed at Villa Medici a beautiful hotel only 500 mtrs from the finish line.
The mens field was stacked with two Hawaii Winners and several top ten finishers and Ironamn winners,and ofcourse our very own James Cunnama!
The womens field was smaller and certainly no comparison at all to the quality of field in the mens race.
After a great nights sleep and afew easy days on the legs we were both ready to go…here is how the rae panned out :

Swim :
I tried to stay with james but the wave of 500…yes 500 athletes made it very hard to spot anyone but felt more like a hug washing machine!So i jumped behind the first pack and managed to lead out of the water not too far behind my fellow team tbber!
Bike :
The bike was a tough course mostly hills and not alot of flat, I felt terrible for the first 30km then began to warm up!I was caught by 2-4th place female along with several male age groupers and managed to stay within 130min of the big group into T2!
Run:
I excited the run in 2nd place with a fast transition and soon took over the lead by about the 2km mark.I ran steady the first two laps of the 3x7km loops.The last loop i knew i had it covered and managed to cruise home around 1min 30 ahead of the next female.

The finishline as all Challenge races was once again amazing and very crowded!
I was so happy to have my mum there and to see James had come second only 230min off Stadler ,running a huge 109…i was incredibly impressed!
Thanks to my beautiful mum for putting up with me and James,and ofcourse thanks to James for destressing me and for doing all the ugly driving on the way home!
Next weekend only 6 days away we are both off again to Challenge France…we love our challenege races!!Cant wait to back it up!
Thnaks to Felix , Steffan and Timo for making us all feel so welcome!kraichgau-2010-finishkraichgau-2010-preso-james-norman-me
